End of an Era

After a decade of service to the youth, Sangre de Cristo Youth Ranch Director, Amy Mann, is retiring. In her tenure at the camp, Amy generously shared her extensive organizational skill-set, artistic flair, and fun-loving attitude with hundreds of campers. She was the spark behind many of our most memorable camp traditions, and has performed much of the less glamorous behind-the-scenes grunt-work to create a world-class month-long residential summer camp annually out of thin air.

Amy will continue brining beauty and fun into the world in her career as a showbiz costume department ager dyer. She made it clear she wasn’t stepping away just to paint bloodstains on Hugh Jackman’s pectorals, but also to make way for the next gen camp staffers. In her farewell address, Amy expressed poignant satisfaction in seeing her “babies” (former summer campers) growing into their full potential by rising to the challenge of producing our one-of-a-kind camp program.

Lucky for us, Amy Mann has joined the Localogy Board of Directors. In that capacity, we will no doubt continue to benefit from Amy’s greatest gift to camp—a deep heartfelt love for the campers we serve. Thank you Amy!
